JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two Flagler County Sheriff's corrections deputies were arrested Monday and indicted in the mishandling of an inmate.

In March 2005 a noise complaint led authorities to arrest 29-year-old Lisa Tanner, the daughter of Flagler's state attorney. Tanner was arrested for disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence.

Officers said while Tanner was in custody she refused to shower and was combative to the point that they had to put her in a restraining chair.

Video from the Flagler County Jail shows four deputies forcing Tanner into the chair as she screamed and eventually passed out in the chair.

All charges against Tanner were eventually dropped, and last month an independent prosecutor began to look into Tanner's treatment while she was in the jail.

As a result of their investigation detectives for the State Attorney's Office arrested Cpl. Brian Pasquariello, 28, and Sgt. Betty Lavictoire, 50.

Pasquarello has been indicted on two felony charges, and has been with the inmate facility for six years.

Lavictoire has been indicted on three felony charges, and has been with the inmate facility for nine years.

"I am obviously disappointed at the return of these indictments, but this agency will continue to fully cooperate with the grand jury as it conducts this investigation," said Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming.
